“Would you choose job satisfaction or a high salary?”

Pheap Sopheavy, 23-year-old student at Asia Euro University
“I will choose personal fulfillment in a career because that will produce better results, and help me develop professionally. Currently, I am a civil servant and a part-time student. Even though the salary is not much, I want to remain in this job because I love it. If I choose a career based solely on salary, I will get bored and unhappy which will ultimately affect job performance.”


Mao Siha, 24-year-old student at Royal University of Law and Economics
“For my first job, I will not care aboutsalary. It would just be something that I enjoy doing. But after enough experience, I will find a job with a salarythat matches my skills. On the other hand, I still want personal satisfaction in a career so that I can stay motivated and overcome professional obstacles.”


Sim Pilot, 18-year-old student at Cambodian Mekong University
“Although money is important, I would choose aself-fulfilling career over a high-paid one that makes me unhappy. If I enjoy my job, it would be faster and easier for me to develop my professional skills. Sometimes working is not only about money; I consider it building blocks for a better future, so I have to choose the right career.”


Min Sovannry, 22-year-old student at University of Puthisastra
Money and personal satisfaction are important factors in my career. How can I stay motivated to work if the salary is too little? A good salary is definitely an incentive to keep your job, but if I don’t enjoy the work, I won’t be able to excel in it. In terms of making a decision, I would give sixty per cent to job satisfaction and forty per cent to salary.


Meas Keovorleak, 21-year-old student at Beltei International Institution
“Money is very important to me so I would choose salary over job fulfillment. Agood salary can motivate me to work well. Sometimes, we can’t always choose what we like. In my opinion, it’s not about having a ‘favourite’ job how I can work with it. I don’t care much about anything else other than a salary and good working conditions.”
